is anyone paranoid they won't get in anywhere? i'm applying to mostly second tier schools but i am am a little worried. lots of stress....

i also worry most about the interview invites because there will be friends of mine (or other people at work) who are also applying. that would be sucky if i'm the only one of the group that doesn't get an interview

Yes and no. Personally, I think anyone who says they don't worry about not getting in is lying. We all do. The possibility becomes eve more real when you look at past year's "Zero Admits" threads. However, none of us knows why someone can come out of this process without getting in so it's pointless to speculate. Let the paranoia light a fire under your a to submit the best application you can.

Try not to psyche yourself out before you've even sent in a single application.

Some words of encouragement: few people realize this, but it is really very difficult to fail completely in anything you do.

I am sorry to hear this. unfortunately the stress will mount only more and more as the applications period is over and you switch into the waiting mode. The days when decisions are announced are the most painful. Many people are with you in the same boat but some hide it better than others.

That's actually very well said!
i used to laugh when I was a kid when someone would tell me that I could anything I wanted as long as I really wanted it (I really wanted candy at that time). Now, however, I have witnessed many impossible situations that were changed and I have joined the camp of those who believe that you will achieve your dream as long as you keep trying over and over and over.

listen, don't take it so hard. just do your best, and in case you are not admitted this year, you can apply again next year. this is not the end of the world.
think of it like this - after you graduate, it won't matter if you were admitted on the first or the second time!
